He finished dead last in a likability poll of potential presidential candidates.
Kerry was last with a rating of 39.6. In three earlier polls this year, he never scored above 46.3.
While many presidential contenders have a chance to make “a good first impression” on voters, Brown said, “Kerry has to convince people who don’t like him that they are wrong and that they should change their minds.”
Yeah, that’s likely…
So, you wanna guess who the top three are? Something tells me you know already…
In the current poll, former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, a Republican, ranked first with a mean score of 64.2, followed by Democratic Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, 58.8, and McCain, 57.7. All three are potential presidential candidates.
So…who were the top Dems behind Obama? Well, you know both of them. One guy is named Bill and the other goes by Joe. They placed 5th and 6th respectively.
Where did Hillary rate? She was 9th…beating out New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson who rated a 10th on the richter scale. But hey, both of them scored higher percentages than Kerry every did, so they’ve got that going for them. However, I just don’t think Hillary has the charisma to get a majority of the country behind her. Now, I think she can get the Democratic base behind her, but then again…I do remember a certain guy we nominated back in 2004…
To me, Hillary represents politics as usual, and if she’s going up against a potential game changer like Giuliani, she’ll get her ass handed to her. She doesn’t have Bill’s charsima, and much like Kerry, she’ll never be able to learn that skill in time. No way.
